Garnto, Gibson take Football Player of the Week awards

The BLITZ Football Player of the Week Fan Vote collected 12,202 total votes, with Commerce’s Trey Garnto taking 5,284 to win the POW Fan Vote. BLITZ then named both Jaden Gibson (Rabun) Co-POWs.


Commerce QBs don’t usually get a whole lot of recognition, as they orchestrate the offense but don’t usually pad up many numbers, especially through the air. However, senior Trey Garnto earns his first POW award after helping guide the Tigers in a win over Franklin County. He had 134 pass yards and a TD to go with 23 rushing yards.

Jaden Gibson put up a career-high 236 receiving yards in a Wildcats win over Banks County. He hauled in 11 catches and had a pair of TD. He actually had a third that got called back. His 236 yards is 37th most in a game in state history. For the season, Gibson now has 51 receptions for 1,202 yards (tops in the state in all classifications) and 11 TD. This is Gibson’s second POW award of the season and fourth of his career.
